What is the difference between a clairvoyant and a medium?


  1. They charge different rates.
    Oh, you meant what’s the real difference? None whatsoever. They’re both as phony as the three-dollar bills you should be using to pay them.

  2. Clairvoyance is defined as a form of extra-sensory perception whereby a person perceives distant objects, persons, or events, including “seeing” through opaque objects and the detection of types of energy not normally perceptible to humans (i.e. radio waves). Typically, such perception is reported in visual terms, but may also include auditory impressions (sometimes called clairaudience) or kinesthetic impressions
    In spirituality, a medium or spirit medium (plural mediums) is an individual who claims to have the ability to receive messages from spirits (discorporate entities), or claims that he or she can channel such entities – that is, write or speak in the voice of these entities rather than in the medium’s own voice.

  3. A clairvoyant is someone who can predict the future, like a psychic. A medium is someone who can channel and communicate with those who have passed; dead people apparently use the medium to communicate with living persons.

  4. One can play an instrument? What would the headlines say if a midget fortune teller escaped from jail?? – SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE !

  5. A clairvoyant or visionary is one who uses their own mind powers
    to seek out the future or the past
    a medium is a conduit for the passing of information.
    television is a medium, so is a newspaper and cell phone
    a human medium is a person who can be taken over, used (possessed) by a spirit (ghost, demon whatever) to relay a message to those in the present.

  6. A clairvoyant sees spirits. A medium communicates with them by various means either with tarot, crystal balls ect. Or they just see and hear them. A person that hears spirits is a clairaudiant.
    Clairvoyant loosely translated means clear vision
    clairaudiant: clear hearing.

  7. They both interfer in the lives of those who don’t have a life…..but one sees the money that will be paid for ‘seeing” and the other gets to take a nap and talk in ‘sleep’ to somebody other than her/him self…but mostly ‘her’…

  8. Actually a clairvoyant is supposed to mean one that can “see” things in a visual way. They see pictures. The pictures themselves can be actual or symbolic.
    A medium which others have already explained communicates with spirits such as: those who have deceased, spirit guides, angels, etc.
    A medium can have several different ways of communicating. A medium can receive the information via clairvoyance (through sight), clairaudience (through hearing), or clairscientenient (through smells), and so on. Some might have a combination of several ways of receiving the information, some only have one way.
    John Edwards tends to describe pictures and symbols a lot doesn’t he? He is a mediium that has clairvoyant abilities.
    Does that make sense to you?
